think for a while it seems like that now have been more of a possibility. ifs nancy pelosi yesterday said that she absolutely does not want that to happen. and she still thinks that is a possibility. i do not think either party -- there just a beginning of this posturing and negotiations, i do not think either party wants to say, we are going to drive. fiscal cliff. they are in in this happy mood of trying to compromise. polling has shown recently that americans are not super confident that congress will actually be able to cut a deal. hear from betty,s a democratic caller. caller: thank you for taking my call. it is tedious for me, because you cannot trust it. for validity or facts. not only that, but even the news, over and over, there is response about kick the cannot. this is been going on for 12, 14, 24 months. kicking the can, yada yada. and i heard one thing, and that is, the president got some leverage. when he said -- i just stopped. the cuts. this is the leverage that could bring everybody together. stop the tax cuts. i do not want to think about them as an increase. just s
